Latinos -- Used!

Update2: Mary Katharine has pictures from the DC rally. Check them out.

Check out the WaPo's headline today! What I want to know is how are Churches reconciling the moral stand on abortion, gay marriage, and pro-family values with the values the event organizers promote? How can church leaders unite with those that stand against everything the Church stands for? Where is the church? Used--disconnected between the truth, and the Judeo-Christian worldview, and what is happening today. Illegal immigration is wrong, any way you look at it. How does a church pastor defend that?


That's what most of these crowds are! Do you honestly think that the average working Latino, with a minimal education, is really all that politically informed and involved? There are those that are--I know many of them. But look at the pictures.

Look at the pictures
. These protests are highly organized, politically calculated, PR managed, opportunistic events set up by the extreme left and socialist groups--both inside the country, and with outside influence. Do you think that the rise of socialism in South and Central America would not have an impact within the US? This is so much more than just about immigration and open borders. Do you honestly think that a majority of Latino attendees at these events truly understand what is going on beyond their honest desire to stay in America and their fear of being deported? They don't. They are being used!

History has demonstrated that Socialism and communism operates on the ignorance and suffering of the underclass, and is opportunistic in its very nature. Socialism rises by appealing to the suffering of the poor! Then, to make things even more insane, you have Muslim and separatists interests in the mix! Do you think Latinos care about the plight of whatever cause these Muslim organizations are pitching? Do you think most Latinos at these rallies really want the South West of our country to be returned to Mexico? They don't. They are being used!

Do we honestly believe that these masses truly want what the left has to offer? Look at the research. Most of these individuals do not agree with abortion on demand--the Democrats are not on their side. Most of these individuals would not approve of legalized gay marriage--the Democrats are not on their side. Most of these left-wing organizing groups are firm believers in larger, more centralized government and in socialist values--the very same kind of governments most illegal immigrants are escaping from and the same kind of system that is distroying France, for example.

I feel so frustrated!! Why is it that Latinos forget the lessons of their past? They are pawns in the hands of socialists and left-wing groups--yes, and the Democrats who are just as opportunistic and enjoying the political profits of these events.

For those that read Spanish:
Pueblo, despierten!! Los Democratas no estan de su lado! Nada mas usan de sus dificultades para adquirir mas poder politico! Ellos quieren imponer sus valores morals y sociales. Los valores Democratas son valores anti-familia, y anti-fe.

People, wake up! Democrats are not on your side! They only use your plight to gain political power! They want to impose their moral and social values. They are anti-faith, and anti-family values.
Sen. Frist, secure our borders. Then, we can talk. Then everyone might be more willing to listen to ideas and discuss solutions for the other complex parts of the problem. But first, close the borders! We do NOT want more open borders. What part of this sentence is so difficult to understand? Can you hear America shouting out in frustration and anger? Can you? Wait until election night--you will.

PoliPundit: The following Republican politicians, who would sell US citizenship to millions of illegal invaders, have permanently lost my support for any elected office:

President George W. Bush
Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL)
Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
Senator Bill Frist (R-TN)
Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS)
Senator Chuck Hagel (R_NE)
Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH)
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA)
Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM)
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)

I donated thousands of dollars to these politicians when they were running for office. I urged readers to vote for them and volunteer for their campaigns. No more. They are agents of Mexico, not representatives of the American people.

The following Republican politicians have earned my support for any elected office:

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO)
Rep. J. D. Hayworth (R-AZ)
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Senator George Allen (R-VA)
Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA)

In addition, all but 17 House Republicans voted for the strong border security bill in December; so they deserve our support. You can check if your Congressman is on the list here.

Few Democrats have supported strengthening America's borders. Those who have, such as Senators Byron Dorgan (D-ND) and Kent Conrad (D-ND), are too far to the left on other issues to deserve our support. The one exception is Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE), who has been good on most issues, and has turned out to be a stalwart on immigration.

So, if there's a race between a Democrat and a pro-invader Republican, conservatives would be well advised to vote for neither. The Ohio Senate race between Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH) and Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) is one such race this year.

Glenn Reynolds:
[Immigrants are] leaving Mexico because its corrupt and thuggish political culture stifles economic growth and opportunity. The people there are smart and hardworking, after all, and they tend to do just fine when they get here. They're leaving because being smart and hardworking is enough to get you ahead in the United States, but not in Mexico. And I suspect that if the Reconquista advocates somehow did get their way, and the Southwest United States became a new Northern Mexico, we'd soon have illegal immigrants crossing over into Kansas and Oklahoma for opportunity, because the Mexican political culture would have ruined things in Arizona and Texas just like it's already ruined them further south.
Ultimately, the victims will continue to be the illegal immigrants themselves. They are victimized by a broken border that encourages and allows employers to abuse and pay lower wages. They are victim of a political system that encourages "victim" mentality, and profits from the dendence of the underclass. And most importantly, they continue to be victim of the corruption and injustice of inefficient governments they are trying to escape. The very least we can do is not extend their victimization with our open border policy and lack of enforcement-backbone.

Secure the borders.

Fix the corruption and inefficiencies in our current legal immigration system.

Enforce the law.

Continue supporting free trade and economic partnership with Latin America.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
